Christmas 1986

The tension grows, the sleigh bells ring
As Santa rides the skies again
The Sleigh is piled high with toys
For all those little Girls and Boys
And the Bells all ring – Ting-a-ling, Ting-a-ling
Then Christmas Day dawns bright and clear
And suddenly we hear a cheer
For all those stockings have been found
And Father Christmas has been around
And the Bells all ring – Ting-a-ling, Ting-a-ling
The family now all gathers around
To join in the cheerful sound
Of laughter, as the Crackers bang
And in the town the Church Bells clang
And the Bells all ring – Ting-a-ling, Ting-a-ling
Give Thanks for all the food we eat
As once again we all can meet
To celebrate a Child’s Birth
Give thanks too for our Health and Mirth
And the Bells all ring – Ting-a-ling, Ting-a-ling.

Tennis Party

The courts are clear – the games are done.
We’ve ended the year – some lost, some won.
We treasure those days with friends who share
In our moments of Joy and moments of Care.
Tho’ ’tis only a game which is played out there,
Like Life, it has highlights and utter despair.
To Frank Gould, a fond welcome we wish to extend.
O’er the years he has been MORE than just a dear friend.
And we need Faith and Friendship to carry us through
So may God bless your Christmas and New Year too.
